INTERMAT 2018, THE EDITION FOR NEW GROWTH AND TECHNOLOGICAL INNOVATION
INTERMAT Paris has over the course of its successive editions become the reference trade show for all professionals working in construction and infrastructure around the world, with the aim of displaying a comprehensive range of equipment, machinery and solutions for construction projects, public works and building.
The next edition of INTERMAT will take place in a conducive market environment. In France, the construction market is fuelled by all the projects relating to Grand Paris, the leading development project in Europe and one of the largest in the world, but also by works relating to the organisation of the 2024 Olympics, which are likely to accelerate the delivery of Grand Paris infrastructure.
Construction equipment and solutions are an essential link in the building and public works supply chain, as they enable these projects to become reality and last over time. In 2018, INTERMAT will curate and display all of these solutions.
The construction and infrastructure sector is a leading driver for the development of regions and their appeal as regards mobility, housing, energy and employment in view of the profound economic, social and environmental changes currently happening. INTERMAT seeks to play a proactive role in this fast-developing market. We have chosen to make innovation and new technology two major development levers for the 2018 show.
And this naturally includes the INTERMAT INNOVATION AWARDS competition, a star attraction, paying tribute to the most innovative equipment presented by the show’s exhibitors. Without wishing to reveal the results, the 2018 vintage holds considerable potential, with a large number of entries and the technologies that will meet the sector’s new challenges in the field of safety and the environment, for example. New in 2018, the competition is divided into the exhibition’s four hubs of expertise (Earthmoving & Demolition, Roads, Minerals & Foundations, Lifting, Handling & Transportation and Building& Concrete Sector) and also includes a “World of Concrete” award and four special awards: “Digital Transition”, “Energy Transition”, “Safety” and finally “Start-up”.
Indeed, INTERMAT 2018 will shine a spotlight on young firms working in the construction sector. The Start-up Village by Eurovia will offer professionals a chance to discover innovation in, for example, equipment sharing platforms, site supervision and 3D plan drawing and modelling, but also an exoskeleton and connected concrete!
Make a date four months from now in Paris, from 23 to 28 April 2018, to meet the show’s
1,500 exhibitors and discover their new solutions, including some of them live in action!
